Sarah Walsh BSc(Hons) Addiction Counselling, MBACP reg, FDAP accredited (DAP)
3 Redcliffe Parade East
3 Grove Road
I specialise in counselling people who have concerns around their own or another’s alcohol consumption, drug use or other compulsive behaviors such as obsessive internet use and gambling.
Some people come to me wanting to control their behaviour, while others may want to stop all together. Others may have stopped their addictive behaviour, but want to address issues which they believe may have led them to behave in that manner.
I have a particular interest in working with individuals who feel alcohol is now their main 'hobby' or 'activity' outside working hours, and are concerned about the affect this may be having on their life.
